Summary
"This case study provides a unique opportunity for readers to learn not only about a most interesting people, the Mbuti pygmies of the Ituri forest, but also about changes in a very significant part of Africa from the colonial era to the present. It is not often that a single book will cover so great a time span of such importance to the shape of the modern world. Nor is it often that we can receive the thoughtful analysis of a senior anthropologist who has done repeated field work in such an area over such a period of time in the format of case study."--Page v
